Abstract: Focusing on the changes in India's higher education sector, this paper looks at the relationship between the growing international mobility, institutions of higher education, skilled workforce production and policy reforms in recent times. Revisiting some of the conceptual issues arising from the literature on transnationalism and Diasporas; and providing a historical context to the shifts in India's education policy, I set up a broader perspective that sees India's investment in its Diasporas as part of the emergence of several new connections. To start, two major changes of recent times need to be understood and analyzed: (a) Initiatives for the vast Indian Diasporas to connect, participate and invest in India and (b) A reorientation of Indian higher education with an emphasis on knowledge-based industries and transnational businesses. These two changes, as the paper argues, complement each other and are closely connected to the global policy regime.
